The 21 Day Fix and the 21 Day Fix Extreme are two of the hottest new workouts from Beachbody and fitness professional Autumn Calabrese. The programs are both 21-days long, with the extreme version being for more advanced people who want a more challenging workout and a more restrictive diet plan. The gist of the program is to train your habits, hence the 21-day program length. It aims to get you into a routine of working out and paying attention to your portions. Not only eating the right amount at each meal but eating the right amount of different food groups each day.
It’s a great program for developing healthy habits, and it’s smart too. You eat balanced meals, and you seem to get a lot of food to eat in a day. I never went hungry on it. But I did have an issue with the fitness program. Some of it didn’t suit me (namely, yoga and pilates) and I prefer to head to the gym for my workout rather than staying home. So I found myself using the diet plan portion of the program and doing my own thing when it came to exercise, but at the cost of over $70 for the program, it felt like a huge waste of money.
Thankfully, there are now alternatives that offer the portion control containers without the fitness program and at a much more affordable price.
